Talking to Kids About COVID-19

COVID-19 Playground Banner

Play it Safe!

Playground equipment in Royal Oak public parks is off limits for the time being. We’ll let you know when the virus is gone and it’s OK to play on our city swings, playscapes and slides again. For now enjoy kicking a soccer ball or playing catch with members of your family at any of our parks. As long as you keep a safe distance -- six-feet or more -- from other park visitors you’re good!

(Thank you, Carl Oxley, for the super cool graphics!)

Royal Oak is Drawing Closer

We send local Royal Oak senior care facilities your drawings, letters and photographs.
